Brown's Mule is a tobacco product for the foolhardy, for those traveling on bravado, for hillbillies and for the sons of hillbillies. Red Shuttleworth qualified for Brown's Mule by the time he turned fourteen.

Mark Zuckerberg and Ultimate Greed



Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook... the Caligula
of the 21st Century

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, voyeur and ad-selling greed-head, is the kind of guy who shows up uninvited at parties, the sort who locates his host's family albums and wipes his boogers on family pictures.

Greed?  It would not be surprising if Mark Zuckerberg sold ad space on his children's skin.

Facebook is a communications company and should be regulated by the FCC.

Facebook apparently dodges taxes.  The IRS should audit Facebook and also audit Zuckerberg.

THE VISIT, A Red Shuttleworth Chapbook





The Visit

a prose poem chapbook

Red Shuttleworth


The Visit is a prose poem adapted from Red Shuttleworth's in-progress Hawk Season Notebook #95.  It is published as a limited edition chapbook by Bunchgrass Press.

In 1950, Red's maternal grandfather, Serge Odnovalenko, brought him along on a visit to a man who had been a colonel in the White Army in Russia after the Revolution.  That long ago San Francisco morning, as reflected by dreams and flawed memory, is the basis for the prose poem / short-short story contained in the chapbook, The Visit

1901-1992
